3-Terminal Positive Regulators

Other names for this product: LM 340,
Courtesy/Thanks to: National Semiconductor

Description: direct replacement of the LM78XX series

General Description

The LM140/LM340A/LM340/LM78XXC monolithic
3-terminal positive voltage regulators employ internal
current-limiting, thermal shutdown and safe-area compensation,
making them essentially indestructible. If adequate heat
sinking is provided, they can deliver over 1.0A output current.
They are intended as fixed voltage regulators in a wide
range of applications including local (on-card) regulation for
elimination of noise and distribution problems associated
with single-point regulation. In addition to use as fixed voltage
regulators, these devices can be used with external
components to obtain adjustable output voltages and currents.
Considerable effort was expended to make the entire series
of regulators easy to use and minimize the number of external
components. It is not necessary to bypass the output,
although this does improve transient response. Input bypassing
is needed only if the regulator is located far from the
filter capacitor of the power supply.

The 5V, 12V, and 15V regulator options are available in the
steel TO-3 power package. The LM340A/LM340/LM78XXC
series is available in the TO-220 plastic power package, and
the LM340-5.0 is available in the SOT-223 package, as well
as the LM340-5.0 and LM340-12 in the surface-mount TO-
263 package.

- Load regulation of 0.3% of VOUT/A (LM340A)
- Internal thermal overload protection
- Internal short-circuit current limit
- Output transistor safe area protection
- P+ Product Enhancement tested
